Re: Conformance Test question

Sure seems like it's inconsistent with what it says in section 2.8 (after the WFC):

  Like the internal subset, the external subset and any external parameter entities
  [E109] referenced in a DeclSep must consist of a series of complete markup
  declarations of the types allowed by the non-terminal symbol markupdecl,
  interspersed with white space or parameter-entity references. 

One place says the structure doesn't matter, the other says a particular
structure "must consist of ..." a particular structure, and doesn't say what
kind of error to report when that structure isn't satisfied.
